Running parallel to a railroad overpass, the recently completed Capital Cascades Crossing pedestrian bridge spans Monroe Street on the south side of downtown near Cascades Park. I took these pictures on a Sunday afternoon, which is why there is not much traffic on this usually busy street. All of those white buildings are state government offices. The tall building to the right of the bridge in the first shot is the Florida Department of Education building. In the last shot, the two buildings on each side of the street house the Florida Department of Financial Services. My son works in the building on the right. The 22 story Florida Capitol building is peeking over the building on the left side and the other white building behind it houses support offices for the Florida Legislature. If you look closely, you can see two murals underneath the railroad overpass by Toronto artist Birdo (Jerry Rugg), which I featured in a previous blog post last summer here.
